The communal association “AMIGAS DE HUANCANE” will be starting its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Copacabana centre. It is made up of eight members and is run by a board of directors of which Nicolasa is the President. The businesses which the members of the communal association run are varied and among them are: selling cheese, selling "Api" [a hot drink made from purple corn], selling milk, selling bread and selling cattle.

The loan they will take out will benefit small businesswomen of which Nicolasa is a member. She says she joined Pro Mujer three cycles ago after being invited by a promoter from the institution who went to visit her in her home. Currently she has a business selling cheese and milk and she says she learnt the business from her parents as it was the family business. After getting married she decided to start up her own business.

The loan she will take out is to increase capital to buy cattle, which she will buy from the communities in the la Paz department. After raising the cattle she will sell them at her sales outlet. This kind of work allows her to generate income to maintain her family, since she is married and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the savings which the institution offers.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
